Banks Reopened after Holiday

In downtown Atlanta, four major banks reopened after a three-day “holiday” decreed by Gov. Eugene Talmadge on Mar. 6, subsequently extended by Pres. Franklin Roosevelt. All banks were directed to prevent large withdrawals without specific statements on how the money would be spent.
